Mike Love And Brian Wilson: A Tale Of Two Beach Boys

WOMC's Bobby Mitchell asks Brian Wilson about writing again with Mike Love.

[lastfm]Mike Love[/lastfm] told me how much he was looking forward to writing again this fall with [lastfm]Brian Wilson[/lastfm]. A complete reunion for the [lastfm]Beach Boys[/lastfm] 50th Anniversary was still a long shot, but this news was at least encouraging. My recent conversation with Brian was anything but hopeful…

Bobby: Mike Love told me you were going to be writing together this fall?
Brian Wilson: That is not true.
Bobby: You’re not getting together this fall – that is not true.
Brian Wilson: No, no.
Bobby: That’s just for writing…I’m not talking about touring.
Brian Wilson: We already wrote our songs, we’re not gonna write anymore.
Bobby: You couldn’t write new songs?
Brian Wilson: Not with him.

Not with him.

Wow.

    Thanks for trying, Bobby. Like many fans, I have been monitoring the possibilities of a reunion, especially on the heels of Al’s Postcard from California. After Brian’s comments here, I have decided to “give up” the fan’s dream and put the Beach Boys into the book of history and memory forever. They must exist only as music, as spirit, in the eternal dream of harmony and beauty, personal to each of us but no longer part of reality or futurity. Very disheartening, but I still have a car and a CD player and beaches nearby to dream upon.

  2. What could possibly come out of a new Beach Boys album that would be worth hearing? Mike’s inane lyrics and the same old “Kokomo”/”Getcha Back” sound.
    No point anyway. Brian is done with the BB’s clearly. Without Carl & Denny, the BB’s are already gone. Anyway, with all the lawsuits Mike has had against Brian, why should he aid his career?
